Russian mercenaries, Israeli airstrikes, and the bloody future of the Syrian civil war
2 days ago
Yochi, Zack, and special guest Alexia Underwood talk about the evolution of Syria’s civil war and how a conflict that once pitted Syrian against Syrian has now drawn in at least six outside countries. Just this past week, Israel carried out waves of airstrikes inside Syria, US troops battled Russian mercenaries, and Iranian operatives in Syria sent a drone into Israeli airspace — all signs of how this deadly war could continue to escalate. On Elsewhere, they discuss a high-level conference in the Middle East that highlighted America’s growing isolation and irrelevance under President Trump. Yochi gives a shout-out to Epcot Center, Zack boasts about the luxurious hotel where he spent the past week, and Alexia shows off her Arabic skills.

It's SO SO SO good. Incredibly informative, witty.
It's all you'll ever need. From Kurdish statehood to Israel Palestine, it's insane how much they know and how interesting they can make these subjects.
